Leveraging Zoom Tools For Collaboration (Workshop #2)

Is anyone out there? Can anyone hear me?? If students aren’t listening, they aren’t learning, so what can we do?

  • Manage students to promote learning during virtual class meetings
  • Deal with common tech issues during virtual class meetings
  • Use Zoom tools to promote interaction and keep students engaged
  • Apply best practices for using screensharing, chat, non-verbal feedback, and polling
